Our First Broken Bone
On Wednesday evening, as I was preparing dinner, my 5 year old managed to break his arm. He was jumping around on the carpet near the kitchen, not doing anything particularly dangerous, when I heard a loud crack followed by a lot of crying. I have no experience with broken limbs, but the loud cracking sound made me highly suspicious. After calling my husband (who used to be an EMT) we decided to take him on in to the emergency room. The x-ray showed a break in his lower humerus. We were there for about 5 1/2 hours from start to finish and now have a new addition to the family - a cast :-D. We were so proud of Mikey for being super brave at the hospital.
